We Sell & Install a Wide Range of Fireplaces, Stoves & Inserts
Time to invest in an entirely new system for your home? There are lots of reasons a homeowner might be searching for new heating alternatives. Sometimes they’re dissatisfied with their current fuel type, sometimes they’re hoping for a model that heats their space better, and other times they’re just sick of coming home to a fireplace that just isn’t their style.
Or maybe you don’t even have a heating appliance and are looking to have one added!
Whatever the case, we’re here to help. Our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) team (from our office staff to our sweeps) is friendly, knowledgeable, and can work with you to find the perfect fit, no problem.
Your Appliance Options
Let’s go over each type of appliance we sell, so you can get a better idea of what type would be the best fit for you.
- Fireplaces: The big thing people gain from having a traditional fireplace in their home is that authentic and classic aesthetic that can never quite be fully replicated with other systems. Fireplaces are typically built from brick, tile, or stone, and they come in a wide range of fuel types, so you’re sure to find a model that fits perfectly with your lifestyle and needs.
- Fireplace Inserts: Do you already have an existing fireplace that you’re looking to upgrade? Whether you’re hoping to switch fuel types or just looking to enhance the efficiency of your system, a fireplace insert is the way to go. Fireplace inserts fit inside of your existing fireplace, making the transition easier and more seamless than ever.
- Stoves: Stoves are free-standing and there’s a lot more flexibility as far as where they can be placed within the home. They’re also known for being highly efficient and producing a lot of heat, which makes them an easy choice for many homeowners.
Wood, Gas, Pellets, or Electric?
Now, picking out the type of appliance you want is obviously a big decision, but there’s another piece of the puzzle you’ll need to figure out too… what fuel type is best for you?
Each type of fuel has its pros and cons, and each is sure to offer a satisfactory experience. It’s mostly about which type is best suited for your home, lifestyle, and budget. Wood, for instance, is known for fitting that traditional vibe that so many are aiming for when investing in a fireplace. That said, they require more maintenance. You better be up for hauling/storing wood, scooping ash, and regularly stoking a fire if this is the route you take.
If you’re looking for something simpler and more convenient, gas or electric is going to be the way to go. Gas systems are ideal for those who want the aesthetic of real flames, only without the work involved. And electric options are appealing because they can be easily moved around.
And pellets? Well, these tend to be ideal for those seeking a middle ground amongst them all. They burn wood like that traditional wood-burning unit, but they’re in the form of pellets that are dispersed into the fire by an automatic hopper (meaning there’s less work involved).
Like we said, it’s just about figuring out which is best for you – and remember that we’re always here and happy to answer your questions and help you navigate this decision.
Professional Installation Is Essential
No matter which type of appliance or fuel type you end up going with, one thing stands true for them all… professional installation is a must!
Why? Well, for one thing, it ensures your system is ready for use. There’s a reason certified techs put in hours upon hours of studying and training. Chimneys and fireplaces are complex systems, and if any piece is missing or installed incorrectly, you could find yourself experiencing gas leaks, fires, and various other hazards.
Another reason to trust a pro is to ensure the efficiency of the appliance is maintained. If you make an investment this big, you want it to work, right? And not just work… but work well.
Finally, it’s important to remember that most warranties or insurance coverage options only work when your system is professionally installed. If you end up facing damage down the line, there’s a good chance you won’t get the coverage you need to move forward with repairs, remodels, relining work, or any necessary restorations if you originally installed the unit yourself.
